Is Beer More Effective At Relieving Pain Than Generic Tylenol?


Good morning, I'm David Greene. Please don't take this too seriously. But some British researchers are suggesting that if you need pain relief, a few beers may be more effective than generic Tylenol. The study in "The Journal Of Pain" does point out the long-term consequences of drinking. And I also remember NPR's science correspondent Richard Harris telling me to keep single case studies in perspective.


RICHARD HARRIS, BYLINE: If you say, oh, is coffee good for you or bad for you? People will say, oh, well, just wait a week and we'll get the other answer.

GREENE: (Laughter) It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
